Fan Forced Utility Heater
SAFE, RELIABLE, ACCURATE.
I own five variations of this heater (Three Patton brand and two called "Utility Heater") all manufactured by Ningbo Singfun Electric Appliance Co. LTD located in Zhejiang, China. The heater is generally the same overall basic shape with the switches and controls located in different places on the front and a variety of different configurations. The heater is offered in grey or black color. I have read a few bad reveiws on this heater and want to "Weigh in" on this. I have used these heaters very well and taken them through the rigors. I have two of the design listed here and use them to heat my garage in able to support my cats. For the last two months i have subjected my heaters to "severe use" varying temperatures and on - off cycles with not even a hint of trouble. Some reveiwers have complianed that the heaters "cycle on and off continuously" and i have noticed that. The reason the heater may cycle alot and quickly is that the heater has an amazingly sensitive temperature control which is a plus on this unit and will (if properly used) will save you money on energy. To properly use the heater DO NOT PLACE THE HEATER IN THE PATH OF MOVING AIR OR DRAFTS (such as near a door, open window or air vent), this is common sense. If you place a fan blowing on your heater/ A/C thermostat you will see what i mean. As for the safety control thing i have not witnessed that and with me being a former Appliance design / Quality Control Tesing Engineer (UL, CSA, AGA, NSF) and the unit having a solid metal case i think it is an non-issue..... Id Put my money on the Ningbo Singfun Appliances id say they are the best on the market and have been around for decades.....MRoTECHNOLIX
Works well, cord does not get hot. Everything seems to work ok. The fan speed, high or low, doesn't seem to do anything. The fan stays at the same speed, so not sure of it's function, unless low is 1300 and high is 1500? Either way, a good buy for me. Very reasonably priced, and very helpful.Ranscott2011
Good heater for the price
Good heater for the price. I use it in my bedroom. It is supposed to be set on the highest setting when you first start it then you can adjust it as needed. I am very satisfied with it for the price it has met my needs. I have it sitting on a little night table but it is meant for being on the floor. It has an auto thermo so it will stop and then cut back on later to maintain the setting.prettypetite29
